About this book

Neither a case study of a particular genocide nor a work of comparative genocide, this book explores the political constraints and imperatives that motivate debates about genocide in the academic world and, to a lesser extent, in the political arena. The book is an analysis of the ways that political interests shape discourse about genocide.

Reviews

"In his timely new book, The Genocide Debate , Donald W. Beachler makes a compelling case that studying the politics of genocide scholarship is as important as studying genocide itself. By showing how different episodes of mass killing - in Rwanda, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Nazi Germany, and the Ottoman Empire - have been politicized, he offers a useful comparative perspective on a topic of great contemporary relevance." - Gavriel D. Rosenfeld, Associate Professor of History and Director, Judaic Studies Program, Fairfield University
